My Big Gay Birthday: Too Ordinary To Be Real

Sunday was my 27th Birthday. That’s right, I’m middle-aged in the gay world. Despite it being one of the biggest weekends of the gay calendar (gay prides, anniversary of SCOTUS ruling), it was a relatively quiet day for me. I woke up and got ready to go to church by myself, no interruptions. My family…

Answering the Awkward: Questions for a Gay Guy

Originally, I wanted to write a “## Things Gay Guys Hate to Hear,” but I was pretty sure that it’s been done. As I Google’d it, the first one that popped up was by BuzzFeed (of course) in February 2014. So in this post, I’ll just go through “20 Things Gay Guys are Sick of Hearing”…

How Do You Want It: Turn Ons

My dad has an addictive personality. When my brother and I showed my dad how to play roulette down in New Orleans, he wanted to continue playing even after we came back home, using nearly 13k at the ‘local’ casino. When my mom got him an iPhone, he finally joined the 21st century and obsesses…

Suited for Anxiety: Pressure of Shopping Alone

It’s wedding season. Being in my 20s mean that I have the distinct pleasure of seeing all my friends get married. But being an atypical gay (and not particularly working), I don’t have that much dress-up clothing. So it’s off to the store for me. Now, I have a few suits from the past. I…

The Hard Truth: The Importance of Being Penis (NSFW)

How do you describe your penis? Is it long, short or average? Thick, thin or veiny? Curved to the left, right or up? Cut, uncut or weirdly cut? Is your knob pointed, blunt or pear-shaped? Is it tan, purplish or uni-colored all over? And don’t even get me started with the balls. Whether gay or…

There’s One In Every Family: Story of the Flaming Duck

Dreams: Tom Daley & the Permanent Marker Fail

Dreams What are dreams? Back when I was in 6th grade, I had to read numerous books on mythology for a handwritten 26-page report, including The Sorcerer’s Companion: A Guide to the Magical World of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Besides being very keen on Harry Potter and the magical world,…

My Regrets: The Time I Shafted My Mother

regret (ri’ gret) noun :a feeling of sadness, repentance, or disappointment over something that has happened or been done, especially a loss or missed opportunity I’ve always claimed that I live with no regrets.

What Is This Feeling?: The Rocky Road Through My First Gay Crush

Every gay guy gets asked this. And often, they don’t have an answer. What sort of questions would instill a sense of speechlessness from a gay individual? Did you always know you’re gay? Honestly, I am somewhat disappointed that none of my friends have questioned me on this topic. But it’s not like I would…
